The Tennessee Titans are reeling after a stunning loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday and after the game wide receiver Kenny Britt made some waves after tweeting that this would be his last year with the team and that makes Kendall Wright a top option to pick up in fantasy leagues.

Britt is a talented receiver, but with his off the field troubles and his attitude, clearly he is lacking maturity and that is something that coach Mike Munchak holds in high regard and that could mean trouble for his production the rest of the season. According to, Britt was benched in the game and replaced with Justin Hunter after making some mistakes, including a holding penalty that wiped out a first down and Munchak said that he has to get better with the attention to detail.

The Tweet that Britt wrote also referred to Jared Cook, who was allowed to leave in free agency after the team didn't try to sign him and many felt that the Titans never used Cook to his abilities, which is what Britt could have been referring to. Britt was a first round pick a few years ago and with his size and speed he has the potential to be a very good receiver, but instead he has become an issue for the Titans and he ended up with just five catches for a little over 40 yards through two games this season and he has not been targeted much either. He has been targeted just 11 times this season and is averaging just over eight yards per catch.

All this makes Kendall Wright an interesting fantasy option going forward as long as he is healthy, as he has 15 targets this season and he had a much better game against the Titans, making seven catches for 54 yards and a touchdown in the game and now he likely will be the primary receiver for Jake Locker in the offense. Wright has good speed and in PPR leagues he could be a nice pickup, especially with Britt's off the field issues.
